We are excited to share our new Library catalog and search tool! We hope that you will find it easy to search and explore our collections. If you need help, have questions, or want to share feedback, visit the Ask a Librarian page.

Interlibrary Loan

Use Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) to borrow or purchase items not found in Vassar's collection.

Books, Scores, and other Returnables

You must be on campus and have arranged for summer borrowing privileges in order to borrow books and other retunables through Connect NY or ILLiad.


You don't need to be on campus to use ILLiad for ordering articles since most article requests are filled electronically.  However, articles that are sent to us in paper format will be mailed to your campus post office box.
